@bobgt89: Did you copy it from an e-mail link by chance?
Sometimes Newegg links get wonky.

Hate their rebate process but it's a very good deal.

Read speed reports suggest it's close to USB 2.0 max (32MB/s or so) but write speed is a plodding 10MB/s or less. This is pretty average for inexpensive USB thumb drives, and after the rebate this is a good deal, but if you frequently transfer large files onto your thumb drives you should be looking at the faster USB 2.0 and 3.0 drives that get 30MB/s write speed and faster.

Top of the line USB 3.0 flash drives, such as the Lexar JumpDrive Triton series, will max out USB 2.0, and are 10-15 times faster than this drive. Makes a big difference, but they also cost 5 times as much.

We've come a long way from zip disks though...

@stienman: "Zip disks" ... It baffles the mind to thing back to a time when ANY storage medium measured it's capacity in MB's...

These are great little drives as long as you're not moving a lot of data on and off on a frequent basis. At least in the past the rebate comes as an Amex card in a reasonable time frame.
